Epworth HealthCare: Centre for Clinical Research Nursing
The Centre for Clinical Research Nursing is a partnership between Deakin University and Epworth HealthCare. It is located in the Epworth Centre on the ground floor of the Erin Street building of the Epworth Hospital, Richmond Campus.
The Centre is led by Professor Mari Botti and supported by Research Fellows, multidisciplinary clinicians, nurse researchers, and higher degree research students (Honours, Masters, PhD).
Deakin University's partnership with Epworth HealthCare provides clinical research opportunities across a variety of acute and sub-acute health care settings. This collaborative partnership between a healthcare and tertiary sector provides a unique setting for students seeking clinically focussed research training or participation in multidisciplinary research across acute, rehabilitation and community contexts. Epworth clinical staff are encouraged and supported to be actively involved in the process of inquiry and research programs.
The centre's research will advance nursing practice and promote critical thinking and leadership skills in research students and clinicians by supporting multidisciplinary collaborative research.
